Nuytsia floribunda is a gorgeous Western Australian plant around Christmas time, when it has eye catching displays of bright yellow to orange flowers. It is a hemiparasitic plant, meaning that it needs a host plant to grow on and get some nutrients from. It can grow as a shrub or to ten metres high. It will grow readily from seed, but is unlikely to survive for more than a year or two outside of it’s natural area.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
